How to Write Fiction: Twists and What They Are

How to Write Fiction: Twists and What They Are

When many writers hear the word they think plot twist, or twist ending and that's about it.  Did you know that every good, meaningful scene has a twist?  Or that every scene should have one?

In today's episode Author and Teacher Holly Lisle and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) explain the tricky definition of a "twist" and then go through the 11 Questions you can ask of every single scene to find one.  Twists are always about knowing how to ask better questions.

This episode contains a spontaneous and live workshop.  We each set up three very basic scenes, then work through both the obvious - and boring - options and then create ways to bring about different kinds of twists into play.  Join us and learn to find the twist in every single scene you write.
